I’ve been interested in finding famed directors’ early work lately. Here’s my latest discovery. Tony Scott, director of such acclaimed classics as TOP GUN and CRIMSON TIDE, is one of hollywood’s famed siblings. He and his now more famous brother, Ridley Scott, started collaborating early on. Their first short film to get attention was BOY AND BICYCLE. Here’s an exerpt that shows some surprising command of editorial style and pacing. And a pure celebration of a youth (Tony) on a bicycle. The music was done by famed composer John Barry (James Bond soundtracks) after he was surprised by the quality of the brothers’ short film.
